This is the most important reference currently available on the understanding of the scientific basis for climate change - the main reason it is the most important is because this volume will become the basis for most climate change policy in the world, at least until the next IPCC Climate Change Report becomes available in 2013.

The IPCC does not conduct original research - rather, it synthesizes and summarizes the most up-to-date scientific research regarding climate change - causes, effects, and ramifications of future scenarios ranging from do nothing (business-as-usual) to reducing greenhouse gas emissions significantly. Because of the comprehensive and exhaustive consensus policy that IPCC follows, the results are the best science as we now understand climate change, without the usual histrionics of those opposed to reducing greenhouse gases (climate change denyers/delayers) or even those who want to reduce greenhouse gases to near zero (some of the more extreme environmental action groups). In other words, this is an incredibly balanced, sober look at climate change and its potential to negatively impact the entire world in a very short time (if nothing is done).

More than 5 stars, consider this an indispensable reference if you are interested in global warming and climate change. However, I am not sure if I can agree with another reviewer that no scientific understanding is necessary before reading this IPCC report. It helps to have a little understanding of the basic science before reading this (although the "frequent questions and answers" parts of the book are indispensable). At a minimum, I would recommend viewing "An Inconvenient Truth" by Al Gore before tackling this 1,000 page titan.

If you are looking for a thorough, detailed review of the the current scientific concensus on climate change, this is it. Though long (at nearly 1,000 pages) and at times technical, it is definitely accessible for those without a science background. The Technical Summary (about 80 pages) is especially valuable and is fully cross-referenced with the more detailed chapters in the book. Every person with an opinion on climate change - whether pro or con - should read this book. It provides a sound foundation for intelligent debate.
